Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do I need a referral from my doctor to receive physical therapy?

A. No, in the State of Ohio, you do NOT need a physician referral to receive physical therapy services and the majority of health insurers cover the services without a referral. We recommend you contact your insurance company to see if a referral is required for payment. After we receive your insurance information on your first visit, we will also contact your insurance company and verify coverage. In addition, keep in mind that if you do have a physician referral, you do have a choice to receive therapy at whatever facility you choose.

Q. My doctor recommended another place for rehabilitation, but I would like to stay closer to home. What should I do?

A. Let your doctor know that you would like to receive your treatment at Hardin Rehabilitation and Wellness Center. You do have the right to choose where you receive your treatment. Remember, the referral from your doctor may be used at ANY physical therapy location you desire, not only the one your doctor suggests.

Q. I'm already in pain. Will physical therapy hurt more?

A. Please understand that pain is a symptom of an underlying problem. While alleviating your pain is one of the goals for treatment, our main objective is to address the underlying problem(s) that are causing the pain. As a result, you may have an increase and/or decrease throughout your treatment before it is finally controlled. So please do not let the pain level be the reason for missing appointments. Make sure you speak with your therapists about this.

Q. How should I dress?

A. You should wear loose fitting clothing so you can expose the area that we will be evaluating and treating. For example, if you have a knee problem, it is best to wear shorts. For a shoulder problem, a tank top is a good choice, and for low back problems, wear a loose fitting shirt and pants so that we can perform a thorough examination.

Q. How long will each treatment last?

A. Treatment sessions typically last 45 to 60 minutes per visit.

Q. How many visits will I need?

A. It depends on your diagnosis, the severity of your impairments, your past medical history, etc. You will be re-evaluated on a regular basis with a progress report with our recommendations.
